"I hope everyone will create their own 'Groove Move' like Kat does in the video." The 'New York City Groove’ single will be released on July 10.

Robert Miller is the founder, bassist and composer for Project Grand Slam (PGS). Born into a musical family, Miller had no choice but to start playing music while in grade school. Piano lessons gave way to the trumpet. At the age of 19 Miller’s fate as a jazz performer was sealed when he was fortunate enough to be assigned, through a school music program, to private studies with Jimmy Garrison, John Coltrane's bassist.
In the early '90s Miller put together The Robert Miller Group. The band continued the Fusion vein that Miller loved and Robert began his composing career.
In the mid-'90s Miller also formed 32 Records, an independent jazz label. 32 purchased the Muse Records catalog and reissued about 100 CDs over the next five years.
Project Grand Slam was formed in 2007, naming the band based upon the James Bond film, Goldfinger, because he wanted a name that was different and cool. Except that he got the name wrong. Miller learned after naming PGS that in the film the evil Goldfinger's plot to rob Fort Knox was called Operation Grand Slam, not Project Grand Slam, but he thought still, PGS is a cool name so he kept it.
As 2015 unfolds Miller and PGS have exciting plans in the works. The band recently recorded four new Miller tunes, including a vocal called "New York City Groove." This song was created by Miller as a kind of love letter to his NYC home, with iconic images of NYC and a true NYC vibe. Kind of like "MTV meets I LOVE NY."
